Red face Re: I need help!

Its looking for a DHCP Server. This, in simple terms is a protocol used by ISP's, offices, etc, to provide IP addresses dynamically instead of assigning one yourself. How are you connected? If you have a static IP (one you assinged) then DHCP won't work. If it is looking for a DHCP server, it sounds like your PC may not have a link or the network is not available to get ot the server. Check your connection first (link Light on), then in Dos window type ipconfig /renew and see if that works, if you get 192.x.x.x address then you are not seeing the network or you setup wrong. I hope this helps...
